Stand Up America Renews Calls for Impeachment Hearings After Hicks, Donaldson Fail to Comply With Subpoenas

New York, NY

In response to former Trump administration officials Hope Hicks and Annie Donaldson willfully failing to meet the deadline for congressional subpoenas, Stand Up America Founder and President Sean Eldridge released the following statement:

"Compliance with congressional subpoenas is not optional. By directing Hope Hicks and Annie Donaldson to withhold documents from Congress, Donald Trump and his henchmen have once again showed that they will stop at nothing to hide the truth from the American people and obstruct justice.

"The Mueller report shows that campaign officials and administration aides like Hicks and Donaldson are critical witnesses for the investigations into Trump's criminal conduct and abuses of power--and that's exactly why the White House is attempting to block their testimony.

"This willful attempt by the Trump administration to subvert the rule of law crystalizes why we need Congress to immediately begin an impeachment inquiry to ensure that Donald Trump can no longer cover up his criminal wrongdoing."

Stand Up America is a progressive advocacy organization with over two million community members across the country. Focused on grassroots advocacy to strengthen our democracy and oppose Trump's corrupt agenda, Stand Up America has driven over 600,000 phone calls to Congress and mobilized tens of thousands of protestors across the country.
